Nelson Winter Wheat
German E winter wheats offering high gluten, high quality and strong disease resistance are seeing rising demand in the UK. Nelson is one of the best choices for growers whether it’s for milling or feed.
The exclusive variety is bred by SZ Schweiger GbR, one of the leading German plant breeders who found it produced grain with outstanding bread-making quality and was classed as “E” quality, the highest quality rating attainable.
Nelson winter wheat is a high gluten, high quality winter wheat with high untreated yield potential and has a wide drilling window from September to February and is early to mature.
Liked by millers, Nelson can also achieve higher levels of protein from lower levels of nitrogen. The variety can earn a premium over normal group 1 premiums with its high protein and Hagberg falling number.
It’s suited to most soil types and has excellent Septoria, mildew, yellow rust and brown rust resistance and can compete with blackgrass, due to its high canopy. It also boasts good standing ability.
